To avoid this, you can control the speed of the fan manually via the app Macs Fan Control.

The program shows the temperature of different components of the system and prompts you to choose between automatic control and manual cooling. Choosing the second option, you can choose to specify the rotation speed of the coolers. So you can pre cool the computer to prevent overheating problems.
